Gun Rights Could Stand More Limitations---This guy does not get it

Charles Winokoor, a staff writer for the Taunton Daily Gazette wrote the article "Gun Rights could stand more limitations" where he says the following
And that begs another question: Why in the world is anyone of any age without formal, military training allowed to shoot a machine gun at an outside range?

I know, I know. It’s our Second Amendment right to bear arms and protect ourselves and our property (”The British are coming, the British are coming!”), and God bless the National Rifle Association for going that extra mile to ensure our freedom to amass a personal arsenal and fire at will.

With apologies to the late Charlton Heston, I just don’t get it.

That is correct sir, you do not get "it". You want to know why we can amass a personal arsenal? The Founding Father's got "it" though.
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson also said in a letter to John Catwright in 1824 "it is their (the people) right and duty to be at all times armed"

You see sir, being armed, and aptly armed is necessary for survival. Not from the British, as you jest, but from men who would just as soon kill you as order a burger from McDonalds. In a recent report that came out, the city I live in is one of the 100 most dangerous cities in nation to reside. That certainly is why I am allowed to amass a personal arsenal, because it my God given right and outlined in the Constitution to be able to protect myself and my family from men who are no better than animals, killing with disregard.

However, there is also always the threat of tyranny from government, and that too is the reason that the citizens of this country are allowed to amass a personal arsenal. We must remember that Hitler came to power while a Democracy was in place. I am not inferring that America will come to that, but it is always a real threat no matter where you live.

As for not being able to fire an automatic weapon without formal military training, I would say that even in the hands of a professional accidents happen. Formal military training is a drastic measure in terms of training. I am confident that I do not need military training in order to fire a weapon, but I would receive some sort of counsel in order to fire a weapon I am not familiar with. When I learned to fire a handgun, it was a police issue Glock .40, with a police officer friend. He showed me how the gun worked and how to shoot it safely. Note that I did not need formal police training, I did not have to go into the academy or become a police officer. No I simply learned informally how to fire a handgun.

Perhaps one day you will get it, and I hope it does not take a violent crime or a tyrannical government.

Dog farts

Since Friday my fiance and my future in-laws have been out of town and I am watching the house and the dogs. This duty includes essentially living at the house, making sure the puppy goes out every three hours and making sure the old dog does not get fed up with the pup and eat her.

Needless to say it has been a trying few days because the puppy has successfully shredded every toy she has, leaving me to clean up a cubic ton of cotton, and she has also eaten half of the very large house plant. Not to mention that every time I sit down she believes that is her cue to hop into my lap, which would be fine except when I am trying to read the newspaper or eat a meal. But she is a very cute dog and when she is being good it makes me think I want a small dog, but then I remember that big dogs are much better to hunt with and can bite the leg off of a would be intruder, or a would be impregnator of my future daughter (heh...you think I joke lol)

So anyway, all was clam last night until the most god-awful smell in the world made its way to my nostrils. I quickly looked around to make sure one of the dogs did not crap on the carpet...again. And then I heard a noise and being a guy who lived in a dorm full of guys for four years, I instantly recognized it as a fart. I look over and the old dog seems to have uncontrollable gas! She is lying on her back legs up, on the floor and can not get comfortable but is farting up a storm. When I start laughing she looks at me, rolls over and starts to walk away.....but the farting continued with every step she took!

I could not help myself, I was laughing so hard because to the best of my knowledge I never actually heard a dog fart. Now the smell was not funny, but the site of this dog lying on her back with uncontrollable gas was hilarious, and then walking away still farting topped it all off.

A reponse to a commentor named seoutfromwithin

There is a person who visits my blog from time to time and we often do not see eye to eye. I am fine with that, I have no need for everyone to agree with what I post and I encourage dissenting opinions. However, a recent comment has prompted me to address the matter in a blog because the response is longer than I like to put in comments.

The person named seoutfromwithin, left the following comment in reponse to my blog post entitled Is Obama back pedaling on campaign promises already?
The comment is as follows:
You don't have the right to be complaining either. You basically threw your vote away on a senile codger who wasn't even running and doesn't belong in politics. You live in a battleground state, I think, and your vote was important. Too bad.

Before I respond I would like to clarify, my vote that she is talking about is the vote I cast for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) for the President of the United States.

Here is my response:
Let's get a few things straight, I voted my conscience and nothing more or nothing less. I do not throw away votes, I vote deliberately and with a lot of thought. Voting for the lesser of two evils is no way to vote and I can sleep at night knowing that my vote went to the most qualified man in the political arena. The only other person I trusted was myself and I knew that I would not get nearly as many votes as he would.

You continuously bash Dr. Paul but never give reason, name call but never real facts. You say he should not be in politics yet since the 70's the people of Texas continue to re-elect him because he does his job in accordance with the Constitution, and apparently that is what the people in his district want. Let's be for real, he is one of the only politicians in America who represent what this Country was founded upon. Furthermore, he is more than likely the only politician who votes in accordance with the Constitution and therefore the law, thus making him the one who has never broken their oath of office or broken the law. The political arena is exactly where he needs to be, we need someone who will hold the rest of the politicians accountable and let the public know when their reps are not doing the job they are paid to do.

Yes my vote was important and it was cast as an important vote. You seem to prefer the disgusting show that the two party system puts on, while I on the other hand believe politics is about more than a Donkey and an Elephant. I believe that everyone should have a fair shot, without the media interfering with the political process.

As far as me having the right to complain, ma'am I can complain about whatever I please. However I would like to point out that the blog post in question was not a complaint, it was more of an "I-told-you-so" where I was pointing out that what I had said about Obama before the election is true up to this point. Let me be clear, Obama is a liar, I said it before and his actions prove it. You should be very careful not to confuse complaining with speaking the truth.

It is fine if you think that I should not be writing this, but that is why this is America and why I have the freedom to post whatever I please. My choice is to post the truth and if folks like yourself can not accept that than you are free to move to a country like China, where they censor the truth, or you are free to not visit this blog.

And please feel free to respond to this post. I will post it, or leave it in the comments, either way it will be here.


Is Obama back pedaling on campaign promises already?

We all remember the time when Barack Obama was greeted with cheers, his name ringing out across the country, and his loud booming voice talking of Change, Change that we can count on.

He was sensational, winning over crowds of people, telling of changing the tone of Old Washington, and telling the country that lobbyists have no place in his White House. He promised to repeal "Don't Ask Don't Tell", the ban on openly homosexual individuals in the military, which caused throngs of left leaning individuals to also flock to him. Obama talked of changing the current intelligence policy in order to preserve freedoms and give back the liberties taken from individuals. And finally, the big promise on the campaign trail, the one I heard so many times that I thought it was his only platform, his promise to end tax cuts for the rich and for companies, you know the ones I am talking about, the ones that Bush implemented that caused so many Obama supporters to fall madly in love with Barack. Yes that was one of his biggest promises.

So what has changed you ask? Everything. For starters he is now the President-Elect and really does not need to promise anything to the 52% of people who voted for him. Hook-line-and-sinker, he cast out his line and people bit, he reeled them in and clubbed them before they knew what was coming, and with all those stars in their eyes they believed everything he said. So what is happening to all of those promises:

A new tone to Washington:
Let's be for real his Vice President is Joe Biden, one of the oldest Washington insiders to circle the Beltway. His Chief of Staff is going to be Rahm Emmanuel, a left leaning "pit bull" (with lipstick?) and is know to be more of the attacking type than the "new tone" and "reach across the isle" type. And as far as those lobbyists go well it seems they actually will have a place in the Obama White House
Despite campaign trail promises that special interests wouldn’t be a part of his administration, President-elect Barack Obama’s has sent signals to the lobbyists that they can get jobs with him.

...the overall message to the lobbying community appears to run counter to the Democratic senator’s campaign promise to keep special interest advocates at arms length.

Yep folks, that New Washing that Obama sold you, is really the Old Washington wrapped in new paper.

Don't Ask Don't Tell:
Source: Washington Times
Reports suggest that Obama may not move as quickly as we had previously thought on the Don't Ask Don't Tell ban. As a matter of fact it may be years until it is actually addressed. In all actuality it may never really be addressed the way it should be, with Obama planing committee's, and we all know that sometimes things simply never come out of the committee. Anyone who is homosexual hoping for equality in the military will probably have to Hope a little longer for that Change.

Intelligence Policy:
Source: The Wall Street Journal
Ah yes, the intelligence policy. A policy that has caused so much controversy, and taken away so many freedoms from American citizens that there are cries of impeachment and calls for trials of President Bush. The same intelligence policy that has sanctioned the use of torture by redefining what the word means, and has brought heat from civil liberties watch dogs. This is the same policy that allows warrantless wiretapping and water boarding. Barack Obama promised to overhaul this policy, but now it appears as if this is unlikely to happen. As a matter of fact he is being advised by a large group of intelligence professionals, many of whom support the current policy. His current transition team is headed by former National Counter-terrorism Center chief John Brennan and former CIA-intellegience analysis director Jami Miscik. Remember on the campaign trail Obama also said that the CIA should be using the same strict guidelines as the military with interrogations, but his two appointees are contrary to his statements. However, because Obama is still a voting Senator he has had some votes since his election and as they say the proof is in the pudding about his intent for his overhaul (or lack thereof) of the intelligence policy
Yet he more recently voted for a White House-backed law to expand eavesdropping powers for the National Security Agency. Mr. Obama said he opposed providing legal immunity to telecommunications companies that aided warrantless surveillance, but ultimately voted for the bill, which included an immunity provision.

The new president could take a similar approach to revising the rules for CIA interrogations, said one current government official familiar with the transition. Upon review, Mr. Obama may decide he wants to keep the road open in certain cases for the CIA to use techniques not approved by the military, but with much greater oversight.

Hey do not blame me if you drank the Hope and Change Kool-Aid. And do not complain over an open phone line, you know with the wiretapping and all, you may just be water boarded until you confess to being a terrorist and then off to that eternal summer camp in Cuba.

Those big fat tax cuts:
Source: The New York Times
Remember how many times Obama bashed the Bush administration for tax cuts for the rich and for companies, and how Obama would overturn those tax cuts. Well that does not look like it is going to happen either.
A member of the Obama economic advisory team, William M. Daley, acknowledged that because of the gravity of the situation, Mr. Obama was leaning toward letting a Bush tax cut for the wealthy expire onschedule in 2011 rather than repealing it sooner.

Huh, so it seems that Obama will not keep that promise either but will let it expire, the same way a Republican president would have done, which is fine with me. However it is interesting to note that one of his major campaign promises, perhaps the one that helped him get elected in the first place.

And last but certainly not least, what about Obama's choice of Tim Geithner to be Treasury Secretary and is also the man who is heading the economic team that Obama currently has in place. A lot of people are questioning this choice
Geithner's involvement in several ultimately ill-fated efforts to buttress the American financial system is the very reason some Wall Street CEO's — a number of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of piquing the man who regulates them — question whether he's up to the challenge.

"We have only two things to say about Tim Geithner, who we do not know: AIG and Lehman Brothers," said Christopher Whalen of Institutional Risk Analytics. "Throw in the Bear Stearns/Maiden Lane fiasco for good measure," he said, referring to the site of the New York Federal Reserve, where many rescue discussions took place.

"All of these 'rescues' are a disaster for the taxpayer, for the financial markets and also for the Federal Reserve System as an organization. Geithner, in our view, deserves retirement, not promotion." Source: International Herald Tribune

Just what we need, a man with a track record of failure, to run our already failing economy.

All I can say is what I said before the election, Obama is a liar and has now sold 52% of Americans a big heaping pile of steaming, stinking horse manure. His devoted followers drank the Kool-Aid of the Hope and Change cult and now it appears that Obama is showing his true colors. Don't say that we did not tell you this would happen.

Government uses $306 billion more to bailout bank!

I woke up this morning in a fairly decent mood. Like I do every morning I check the news online to see what is happening around the world, and to see what else the government may have screwed up today. As if not to be disappointed the first thing I read this morning was this headline: CitiGroup gets massive government bailout


And here is the first paragraph:

(Click for full article)
NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. rescued Citigroup Inc, agreeing to shoulder most losses on about $306 billion of the bank's risky assets, and inject new capital, bolstering investor hopes that the government will support big banks as the economy sinks into recession.

The bailout, announced late Sunday, gives the government the right to buy an equity stake, and marks its latest effort to contain a widening financial crisis that has already brought down Bear Stearns Cos, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc and Washington Mutual Inc.

Remember that $700 billion dollar bailout that the taxpayers favored were completely opposed to and our representatives voted for them anyway? Yes well as I posted a while back it is not being used for "bailing" out anymore. This $306 billion is not coming from that money, it is additional!

Notice the article says that the government will shoulder most of the losses. This continues to set up an issue of these companies running their businesses into the ground and then the government takes over all the burden and the company is fine, as a matter of fact the government is now guaranteeing CitiGroup.
U.S. President George W. Bush called the bailout necessary "to safeguard our financial system," and said the government would, "if need be," make similar decisions in the future.

This is what President Bush said last time as well. Did it safeguard the economy? NO! The market is still plunging!

I have said it before and I will say it again....LET THESE COMPANIES FAIL!!!! We will never have a sound economy if we continue this crap. This is like a farmer growing weak plants and then simply propping them up and using them year after year. His profits will be bad, his food will be bad. Instead the farmer would figure out how his entire farm can be stronger and adjust accordingly.

Now don't get me wrong, the government is a farmer too, except the only thing in the government's fields are shit, and they keep taking more shit from failing farms.

Contact your representatives. Tell them you are taking note and they will pay come election time. Tell them you are watching.

Open those wallets, the government is pledging $7.4 trillion more

Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government is prepared to lend more than $7.4 trillion on behalf of American taxpayers, or half the value of everything produced in the nation last year, to rescue the financial system since the credit markets seized up 15 months ago.

Thanks government for lending this money on behalf of the taxpayer's. Interesting how we can lend so much money although we are actually a nation in debt.

Man shot with 20,000 paintballs (awesome video)

Today I began using Google Reader (and shortly all of the blogs I read will be perused through Google Reader as well as long they have a feed enabled), and I am really glad that I did. I subscribed to some feeds and that is how I came across this video. It is Adam and Jamie from the Mythbusters, and apparently they have created a machine that will shoot a large quantity of paint balls at a high rate of speed. Adam shoots these paint balls at Jamie, but I do not want to spoil it so here is the video.

Obama voters are the dumbest people around (and the media makes them that way)

This video has solidified that Obama voters are some of the dumbest people alive. Watch this video and you will see what I mean. I am partly appalled and partly afraid. Now before you go bashing me for saying that Obama voters are dumb, I have loved ones who voted for Obama, and yes I believe that single vote to be the stupidest mistake they have ever made. I am not sure what type of person can vote for Obama after knowing his policies, especially re-distribution of wealth and his policies on disarming the American public. If you vote for someone without knowing their, without understanding them than you are stupid. If you know his policies and understand them and you still voted for him, you are the biggest fucking idiot on the face of the planet.

Now for your viewing pleasure, the video showing the stupidity of the people who voted for Obama.

For Liberty,

The writing is on the wall

Two great quotes from Thomas Jefferson that are like writing on the wall.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Do you think the government fears us?

Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day. But a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers (administrations), too plainly proves a deliberate systematic plan of reducing us to slavery.

Let that ruminate in your minds for a few seconds.

And here my friends is a bonus brain bender from Henry Ford:
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

Yes friends now remind yourself who controls the money in this country. Ah, the Federal Reserve, which is neither a Federal organization nor a Reserve. Did you know that the Federal Reserve is a private organization that prints our money (which itself is illegal under the Constitution) and that we pay interest on every dollar they print.

Those are your things to think about today.

Weight Loss Update

I am one week into my weight loss and this past week I lost 4.8 pounds, which bring me down to 393.6 pounds. Yes I have a long way to go, but I plan on taking it one day at a time and to never look back. I have set short term goals of at least 10 pounds every two weeks and a long term goal of 150 pounds by November 12, 2009. One day at a time makes it much easier to deal with.

I have stopped the 3 day heart diet and have only been doing to 1600 calorie diet. The 3 day diet gave very little food and was based on a chemical breakdown, and while the weight loss would be significant I was beginning to feel sick by the end of the first day. I broke the 3 day diet by eating an apple which raised my blood sugar and made me feel much better. Perhaps in the weeks leading up to the wedding, after I am used to eating smaller amounts of food (ie the correct amounts of food), I will go to the 3 day diet in order to drop the last few pounds I can. At this point I will use the 1600 calorie diet and lose the weight 1 pound at a time, 1 day at a time, until finally I am slim, fit, and healthy.

But this is not something with a definitive end. I have already decided that this is a life long change, a journey that will really never end. At some point I will be able to grab some pizza, or have that slice of cake, but now is not the time for that, I spent the past 22 years doing that, now is the time for healthy foods and a healthy life.

So here is to the rest of my life, and to your as well. If there is anyone who needs some encouragement, or would ;like to ask some questions, drop me a line.

Also I just signed up for a free website called sparkpeople.com, it has a lot of valuable resources for weight loss as well as menu's diet plans, goal trackers, articles, and a great group of people, essentially everything you would ever need to start your journey, stay the course, and find the help and strength when you get derailed. Check it out.

Obama socialist poster becoming icon? (WITH VIDEO)

I found this video this morning about how the Barack Obama poster, stylized after Lenin's posters from 1917, is quickly becoming an icon for this generation. I am baffled by the stupidity of the public in this video, the ones who are talking about how great the poster is and how it makes them feel. Not one of them understands what the poster is styled from and draw the parallel between his poster and his policies.

Watch the video, and then read the rest below.

EDIT: Please follow link to go to video

Folks, remember when i wrote the blog post entitled Barack Obama Propaganda-esque posters? That was way back in August when I had first seen the poster in a local restaurant. I immediately recognized the poster as being familiar but I could not place it, and then I realized it was modeled after a Socialism propaganda poster.

What baffles me even more is that the citizens in the poster are awe struck by the poster but do not realize it is a socialistic poster and Obama has socialistic policies. How many signs of socialism are we going to have before we finally understand what is going to happen?

And what about the girl who talks about Che Guevara as if he is a superstar, discussing how his image is on shirts everywhere. Che Guevara, as in the Argentinian Socialist Revolutionary, the same one who helped Castro bring Communism to Cuba; yes it is that Che Guevara she is comparing Obama's poster to. She probably does not want to draw that parallel between the two but it is appropriate.

Half of this country has been dooped, and now they are wallowing in their stupidity.

Congressman Broun apologizes for comparing Obama with Hitler

A few days ago I posted about Congressman Broun drawing parallels between Obama and his policies to Hitler and Marx and their policies.

Apparently Congressman Broun has caved and has released an apology saying:
I regret putting it that way. I apologize to anyone who has taken offense at that.

Rep.Broun may I make a suggestion? Do not apologize for speaking the truth. People have compared President Bush to Hitler as well and no one has apologized for that. I hope that no one thinks that Obama deserves any more respect or consideration than Bush in dealing with drawing parallels.

Are some of Obama's policies socialistic? Absolutely
Are some of Obama's policies reflective of Hitler's policies? Absolutely
Are some of Obama's policies reflective of Marxism? Absolutely

So then why the need to apologize. It is my belief that some people may want to treat Obama with kid gloves because they do not want to seem racist. I say calling it as you see it is not racist. History books, historians, and professors do this very thing all day. Anyone who can not draw parallels from history will be blindsided.

Am I racist? No. I have a very mixed family, some of them are black, some of them are latino, some of them are white. My family represents many nationalities as well including Italian, Irish, Dutch, German, French, Russian, Puerto Rican and the list continues.

Racist I am not, and will I compare Obama to Hitler and Marx, yes I will because it is true. It could be the case that he surprises me and goes against what he has been saying, so be it, but as his policies currently stand he is a socialist with policies comparable to both Hitler and Marx as well as other socialist and communist dictators throughout the world both past and current.

Rep. Broun, do not apologize for being knowledgeable, and if people are offended than they should take a stroll through history and they will see they have no reason to be offended unless of course the truth offends them.

For Liberty,

It's the Great Bait and Switch Charlie Brown

Except I wish this one were just a kid's story with some lovable characters called the peanuts. However the characters involved in this story are not lovable characters, they are criminals, and they have bamboozled the American public and this is the Great Bait and Switch.

It all started when some financial institutions went began to tank. They wondered out loud how they would keep their company afloat while secretly wondering how the executives would fly first class, if the office party would go on this year, and what about those pesky pension plans?

Never fear, here comes "W" whipping up hysteria about the Urgent need to pass a bailout bill, and here comes Paulson to the rescue with a few things drawn up, and if that was not enough we even have Nancy Pelosi suspending normal rules of order so that this bailout in order to buy troubled assets could be passed without debate and without our Representatives reading it.

So a $750 billion bill was passed quickly and the American Public was told it would be used to help these failing companies, allowing the Treasury Department to buy bad assets and jump start the economy.

Fast Forward to the morning of November 12th.

Secretary Paulson makes a speech telling the American People that the Treasury will no longer be buying Troubled Assets. Instead of being TARP (Troubled Asset Recovery Program) it is now the CPP (Capital Purchase Plan), meaning that the Treasury Department is now buying stock in financial institutions, specifically banks.

Please, think of that one more time. The American people were told that this bill must be passed because financial institutions are failing and we must bail them out. Against the opinion of the American public the bill was passed, and now this huge blank check is actually not going to help troubled businesses it will now be used for the Treasury Department to buy stocks in banks. That my friends is the bait and switch and is called fraud.

Okay so benefit of the doubt, perhaps Paulson did not know that the money would be used for this. Maybe he thought it would absolutely be used for a bailout.

Or maybe not, take a look at what else he said at the press conference:
"By October 26th we had $115 billion out the door to eight large institutions. In Washington that is a land-speed record from announcing a program to getting funds out the door. We now have approved dozens of additional applications, and investments are being made in approved institutions."

Ah yes a land speed record that included suspending normal rules of order for a bill that many of our politicians admit they did not read, but they certainly tacked on their own special interests.

And is there more Secretary Paulson?
Paulson said today, he knew when the bill was signed the purchase of trouble assets wasn’t the right solution to the problem.

Well, well that certainly sounds a bit fraudulent, don't you think?

Yes my friends, the American Public has been bamboozled. While the American public saw through the charade of this bailout bill, our politicians allowed themselves to be fooled into voting for this bill that would buy troubled assets. And now those troubled assets are not troubled at all and the American people are stuck footing a large bill.

That my friends is the Great Bait and Switch.

Outraged? So are the folks over here at Break The Bailout...go on over, perhaps you can make a difference.

Congressman talks about Obama dictatorship; Marxist agenda

Finally someone else gets it

From Associated Press 11/11/08

A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship.

Uhhhh yeah, glad I am not the only one who saw that coming.

"It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said, "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."

I am pretty sure some folks have asked me if I was perhaps over reacting with this whole Obama as Fuhrer-elect President-elect. I guess the answer to that is above.

"That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun said. "When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist."

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.

Broun said he also believes Obama likely will move to ban gun ownership if he does build a national police force.

Obama has said he respects the Second Amendment right to bear arms and favors "common sense" gun laws. Gun rights advocates interpret that as meaning he'll at least enact curbs on ownership of assault weapons and concealed weapons. As an Illinois state lawmaker, Obama supported a ban on semiautomatic weapons and tighter restrictions on firearms generally.

"We can't be lulled into complacency," Broun said. "You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential."

Hey buddy you are not the only own who thinks Obama will attempt to ban gun ownership. His "common sense" gun laws are rubbish. And it is worth noting that semi-automatic weapons include handguns that are not revolvers...ie the vast majority of handguns. I wonder if he will disarm the police or if they will be swept into that Civilian Security Force.

And do not worry sir, I am comparing him to Adolf Hilter, and to Stalin, and to Marx. If he does not like the comparison than he should reconsider his policies that make himself look like those horrible human beings.

On a side note it is interesting to see that Obama's Presdient-elect website page has changed. The agenda section used to be a very in depth look at his policies and plans, now it is general and sweeping. That is most likely because people were calling out his Marxist policies.


Honor and Remembrance for the Veterans

Today is Armistice Day, when on November 11, 1918 World War I ended.

Today is also Veteran's Day and we remember and honor all Veteran's who have fought, some died giving all for this country, others gave all they had and came home. No matter how they arrived, whether it be on an airplane under their own will, or inside a mahogany box draped with the Stars and Stripes they are all heroes.

About a year ago I wrote a poem for my grandfather, he has left this earth long ago, but while here he served his country as a Marine. He fought in Vietnam, and no matter what the political views he did what he was supposed to do and he and his brothers were brave. Other members of my family also served in the military and I honor them as well, but this is my grandfather's poem, this poem is in honor of James "Jimmy" Farrell.

My Grandfather
James "Jimmy" Farrell
Semper Fi, Do or Die OO-RAH

A Drink and an Ode

To you old warrior I raise my glass,
A war others would not, you fought!
God, Country, Corps…Semper Fidelis

A young Marine trudging through tall grass
Keeping watch over the freedom your brothers bought
To you old warrior I raise my glass

Under Ol’ Glory you were trained to kick ass
You, the devil dogs, you ruthlessly fought
God, Country, Corps…Semper Fidelis

I have a picture of you clad in brass
Pride swelling, keeping you in my thoughts.
To you old warrior I raise my glass.

A man full of courage, securing the jungle pass
Looking for Charlie, the enemy must be caught
God, Country, Corps… Semper Fidelis

You old friend defended us in the past
America will forget you not
To you old warrior I raise my glass
God, Country, Corps…Semper Fidelis.

To all the Veteran's...
No matter how many times I say thank you it will never express my deep gratitude to your service. I have nothing I can give or offer that will ever be enough for your service and sacrifice. I can only keep you all in my heart and give you the utmost honor and remembrance. I can also vow this, I will always love America with my entire being, I will always love the Stars and Stripes with my entire being as well. I vow to defend the liberties that the people of this country were granted by God, and that are set out in the Constitution of these United States. And should anyone attempt to take those rights away, I vow to fight for this country and its' people, the way patriots such as yourself and our ancestors have fought, because I would rather die fighting for liberty than to live without it. This, my friends, is the least I can do.

Republican for a Reason

The GOP has launched a new website called Republican for a Reason. They are looking for ideas, comments, etc. and includes the new Party Platform and Rules. Right now I am not the biggest fan of the GOP. Most of us who are conservatives, who love liberty and personal freedom are stuck. The GOP has moved from it's conservative roots causing many of us to be alienated and at the same time we would never think of going to the Democratic party, especially since it appears they are marching towards becoming the Socialist party. I am blogging about this website for one simple reason and it is the first paragraph of a letter stated in an email from Mike Duncan, and written on the front page of the website, it goes as follows:
As we regroup as a Party after the presidential election, we must reflect on what we have done well and what we can improve upon as we move forward.

The GOP must know why they lost this past election, we must correct them and let them know that until they move back to Conservative values and small Federal Government, that they will not gain votes or respect.

I urge everyone to go to the new website, sign up, and express your views and ideas. Most of the people who read my blog are also bloggers themselves, so I know you have opinions.

I myself have submitted what I think the GOP needs to do in order to be the true conservative, true Republican party that it once was. Unfortunately that has yet to be posted on the website, although the FAQ's section says that all comments are posted. When it is posted I will post it here, I believe it particularly good and dead on.

Now off you go, give 'em hell, take back your party, take back your country.


Embarking on a weight loss journey....again

© istockphoto.com

Quite some time ago I began a weight loss journey on this blog. Since that time I have failed to continue that journey. Today, however, I have decided that I have no choice but to do it again and get serious about it. The reasons are many at this point, my knees hurt, the driver's side seat belt in the car does not fit, causing me to drive without it, I just bought a new suit the other day and almost could not find one, I get winded going up a flight of steps and my back hurts after walking for 20 minutes or around there. On top of that I am getting married in 6 months and 6 days from now and I want to look good, and I want to be able to plan a honey moon accordingly. It is hard to plan a honeymoon when airplane rides are uncomfortable, both for me and the people in the seats next to me. Not mention that I must ask for a seat belt extender each and every time I board a plane. At this point I realize that my weight problem will prevent me from doing the majority of the things that I want to do in my life, and at 22 I have quite awhile to live without doing the things I want. I also believe that my weight is a contributing factor in the difficulties that I have in finding a job. People just do not want to hire heavy folks when dealing with the public. While this is my suspicion I obviously can not prove that. Finally, my weight is impeding my being able to effectively carry a firearm concealed, and that is crucial to the protection of myself, my fiance, and my family. It is all of these reasons that I am deciding to lose weight, and lose all of it this time.

So how the hell am I going to do it?

Well I have spent the last few weeks psyching myself up for it. Does it take a few weeks? Maybe, maybe not, but now I know I am ready, so a few weeks or a few minutes you will know.

Here is the game plan, I will use two separate "diets". I received both of them from my local hospital, it has one of the best cardiac units this side of the United States and is one of the top 100 hospitals in the country. The first one is 1600 calorie diet complete with a menu and a substitution guide so that you do not get diet fatigue with eating all of the same foods. The other diet goes by many names but I believe this one is the "Alabama Heart Diet" first used in the cardiac hospital there. It is also used at the local hospital here and is intended for obese patients who need to lose weight quickly in order to go to surgery, mostly heart surgery, as the name would suggest.

So how will I use them?


The Heart Diet is to be used for 3 days and then you are supposed to eat normal for the rest of the days. Understand, that when they say normal, they mean healthy normal. If your normal is a whole pizza than we need to re-adjust what normal is lol. So for 3 days I will do the Heart Diet and then for the following 4 days I will use the 1600 calorie diet as my normal benchmark. Once I lose a substantial amount of weight I will shift away from the Heart Diet and use either the 1600 calorie diet or a 2000 calorie diet, depending on my activity level. Once I lose enough weight I plan on working out, mostly because I will be able to do so and hopefully enjoy it.

My only fear is this, when people lose a substantial amount of weight the skin usually does not come back close to the body and requires surgery. I am hoping that I am still young enough, and that my skin is still elastic enough that it will recover from the stretching. Somewhere in the back of my mind I know that it will probably require some sort of surgery but I will cross that bridge when I get to it. Right now it is all about getting the weight off and keeping it off.

This morning I stepped on the scale and it was not as bad as I thought but was not too far off what I thought it was going to be. I will divulge my weight simply because I believe it will be helpful for me and possibly helpful for other people as well. While this blog will not turn into a weight loss blog I will use it periodically to make updates. So this morning when I stepped on the scale the little voice (it is electronic and talks to me) said 398.4 lbs. Yeah, tipping the scale just a a bit there, but I was expecting over 400 lbs, so 398.4 was not as bad as I thought.

Well here we go, if anyone else is going through the same thing let me know and I will offer the best support I can. Best wishes.

Job woes

I have been having some job trouble. This post has been in draft since October 20th so keep that in mind.


I started a new job two weeks ago, last Thursday I found myself without work again. Let me explain, I am a fantastic employee, I am hard working, dedicated, and will get the job done. So what happened? Here we go:

I am Therapeutic Support Staff certified and I can work on a treatment team to give therapy to children with behavioral disorders. This ranges from Autism to ADHD to Oppositional Defiance Disorder. In this field of work you are at the mercy of a few factors, including insurance companies, parents refusing to allow you to give treatment, and whether or not the kid goes to school or gets kicked out of school. My problems thus far have been the insurance company and the kid being removed from school.

After months of getting the insurance company to approve the child for treatment I was finally able to go into the child's school. The child that I was assigned to was diagnosed with multiple behavioral disorders including ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder (it is worth noting that this is the one disorder that I was wanred to try to steer clear of). When I got to the school the first day the teacher told me that he is prone to getting into fights but is more of a follower. He is disruptive in class by calling out and leaving his seat, but compared to the rest of the children in the class he is otherwise a good kid.

I have been working with him for about a week and a half during which time he did not get into any fights and for the majority of the time he raised his hand instead of calling out. His teacher reported to me that for all intensive purposes he is a different child when I am in the school with him, and is much better when I am not there in the afternoon (I am with him in the mornings usually.)

So Thursday I arrive at the school at 9:30am. The children get there at 8:45am. I had warned the school multiple times that I should be there when he arrives as he gets hyper on the bus and needs someone to calm him down; apparently the school did not agree, stupid. I am greeted in the office by the principal, a woman who seems more concerned about her hair, nails, and drawing attention away from her beak shaped mouth, the guidance counselor, whom was a little flaky at all times of the day, an intervention counselor, whom I have throuroughly enjoyed working with, and another teacher.

Apparently the child, along with two other children, began to throw everything they could get their little hands on, break anything and everything and harassed anyone who came into that room. I prepared for the worst when I entered those doors. I expected to see hell on earth complete with fire and brimstone instead I walked into the room to find the kid sitting quietly in his desk doing work. Admittedly the room was fairly empty and there was a lot of stuff broken but it was not nearly as bad as I had been told.

I noticed that the windows had been covered in black paper and the kids were confined to a square made from green tape that the children were forbidden from leaving. I also noticed that all of the kids' artwork had been removed the walls, the desks had been emptied, all signs of reward systems had been taken away, and the teacher assigned to the room was not the same as previously. In short, the administration thought it a good idea to change everything these kids had known since school started, kids who are already diagnosed with behavorial disorders and benefit greatly from routine, without giving them any type of warning at all and never explaining to them what was happening.

After speaking to my child, he told me he broke part of the plastic covering of the computer wires and yelled at the teachers. He also told me that he threw hs book but not at anyone and that he did not hit, kick, bite, spit at, or otherwise harm another human being. That was a small victory for me. He also told me that the school was making them feel like a prisoner with the black paper on the windows and the tape on the floor. He was also very upset that the school took his pencils, the ones with the cartoon character erasers (later in life he will learn to be pissed about someone taking his green paper, the ones with the dead presidents on them).

So I empthazied with him, I understood how he felt, but I counseled him on how to deal with his anger more appropriately. His teachers did not make it better for him. He asked one teacher a question about whether or not a movie was "whack", this professional looked at him in the face and said "I don't know if the movie is whack because I don't live on the streets and use that word". She made me so frustrated that I wanted to wrap her plethora of necklaces around her stupid little neck.

Shortly after I arrived the police arrived, and then I had to call in his therapist, who arrived with his mother. The police officer was sensible and gave them all a very frank but helpful talk and told them he wuld not be giving them citations, because, let's face it, citing a 10 year old only hurts the struggling mother and the judge is going to throw it out anyway. But the principal ensured me she would be pressing charges, which will probably result in a fine and keep the kid out of the school system for good.

That in itself enrages me, because if that kid had cancer she would have been much nicer to him. She was, in short, an unprofessional bitch to everyone of those children because she chose to see them as nothing more than being bad, when in fact they have a mental health disease. It is probably a blessing he is not in that school, but in a bone head move the school district ocndensed all of the resources to help these kids into two schools. So I suppose one down, one more to go for him. The last time I heard, he is still in the Children's Home Day Academy where he can receive treatment. I have been to that place, I do not think they treat the children well, but that is what happens when the county eats out of your hand.
So with all of that being said I am currently jobless, technically laid off I suppose. Needless to say I have been going on more interviews, and putting out more resumes. I was promised a call from a company on Friday, hopefully they call me this Monday lol.

Who knows, maybe I should just wait for Obama to become President and then I will never have to work again or something like that. Right?

Obama and Emanuel's plan for Mandatory Civilain Service

I warned some people of this, they did not believe me. I told you Obama was a Socialist and that he would surround himself with other Socialists. And here we have it folks....exhibit A!

Hat Tip to Disloyal Opposition

Rep. Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, President-Elect Obama's choice for chief of staff in his incoming administration, is co-author of a book, The Plan, that calls for, among other things, compulsory service for all Americans ages 18 to 25. The following excerpt is from pages 61-62 of the 2006 book:

"It's time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, All Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service.


Here's how it would work. Young people will know that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the nation will enlist them for three months of civilian service. They'll be asked to report for three months of basic civil defense training in their state or community, where they will learn what to do in the event of biochemical, nuclear or conventional attack; how to assist others in an evacuation; how to respond when a levee breaks or we're hit by a natural disaster. These young people will be available to address their communities' most pressing needs."

You better bet your ass that this will happen and I told you that it would happen. Congratulations you 53% of American's who voted for Obama, YOU HAVE TURNED THIS COUNTRY OVER TO A SOCIALIST, now get your asses over to that mandatory service class.

Do you not understand what this means. It means that at any given time there will be roughly 32 million people who will be trained to take orders from the Department of Homeland Security. Ummmm....please someone correct me if I am wrong, and I hope I am, but is this not how other Socialist and Communist countries have done it and turned it into a "volunteer" military? Think about Korea, China, and Communist Germany.

Do you not understand what it means when a large mass of people are trained to obey a government organization? They will be turning in their neighbors in no time.

You think Obama is all fun and games until someone loses their freedom.

Never have I clung to my God and my Guns like I am now.

In Defense of Liberty,

One thing is already clear about Barack Obama

Less than 48 hours after Barack Obama has become the President Elect, there is one thing already clear about him, he is not what people had expected, and there is no way he can follow through on everything he said.

Just hours after news of his election he began to assemble his White House team by extending an offer to Rahm Emanuel to be his chief of staff. Emanuel is far from Obama's the mantra of Change and unification. Obama's decision has raised some eyebrows within the Democratic party, with some noting that Emauel has been called a partisan attack dog. Obama made it clear during his campaign that he wants to unify America, which would make one expect that he would appoint more centrist figures, which Emanuel is not.

It is also becoming clear that perhaps Obama can not effectively keep some of those promises that he made during his campaign. A lot of his voters are under the impression that they will no longer have to worry about paying for certain bills, such as their mortgage or the gas they use in their car. Still others believe that they will receive checks in the mail based on Obama's tax plans, and some believe that they will have immediate and instant access to any type of health care that they want as well as unlimited welfare benefits. He plans on doing this while cutting taxes and lower the national debt.

The problem is multi-fold. First Obama can not possibly pay for the mortgage of every person in America nor can he pay the gas bill, at least not while lowering the national debt and cutting taxes. Obama also said that anyone making under $250,000 will not have their taxes raised, yet that number has since decreased to $200,000 and then $150,000. On the subject of taxes we also need to discuss the fact that people think they are getting a $500 tax check in the mail, however it is a $500 dollar tax credit which is much different than a $500 check in the mail (which also means that the people currently on welfare but unemployed will actually have to get a job to get this one, and that, at least, is a good thing).

As far as instant access to any type of health care, we only need to look to the Canadians who routinely come across the border to receive health care that they would otherwise need to wait for in their own country, Canada has the health care system that Obama would like to set up. However, some countries such as Thailand and India have some of the best hospitals in the world, some better than in America and they have very low cost healthcare. In fact most people do not have insurance, they simply have the equivalent of a Health Savings Account which allows them to pay for these procedures themselves, and at a fraction of the cost.

It seems that Obama was able to pull the wool over the eyes of many people, and by doing that he got many more people to vote who would normally not vote. Now that he has received the vote I believe the wool he pulled over the eyes of the uneducated masses will begin to fall apart and people will see his true colors.

The smoke and mirrors are already dissipating in Indiana, as campaign workers are angry over not yet being paid or not being paid the correct amounts, as promised. The following is as reported by WTHR Eyewitness News in Indianapolis.
Indianapolis - Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning. Police were called to the Obama campaign office on North Meridian Street downtown to control the crowd.

The line was long and the crowd was angry at times.

"I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker.

A former spokesman for the Obama campaign said 375 people were hired as part of the Vote Corps program and said people signed up to work three-hour shifts at a time. Three hours of canvassing got workers a $30 pre-paid Visa card.

The workers showed up to get their cards Wednesday morning at 10:00 am.

"There was a note on the door saying 1:00 pm and then at 1:20 pm everybody was like why is nobody here. They just got here and they're trying to get it organized," said Heather Richards, a former campaign worker.

The large gathering of around 375 people prompted police to call in extra officers and set up temporary barricades. The barricades helped keep the crowd from spilling out onto Meridian Street. Police say the several hundred people in line were for the most part orderly.

"No arrests. Some of the people were upset at first because the line wasn't moving as fast as they thought it should. But we really haven't had any problems," said Major Darryl Pierce, Metro Police.

Eventually people did start getting paid, but some said they were missing hours and told to fill in paperwork making their claim and that eventually they would get a check in the mail.

"Still that's not right. I'm disappointed. I'm glad for the president, but I'm disappointed in this system," said Diane Jefferson, temporary campaign worker.

"It should have been $480. It's $230," said Imani Sankofa.

"They gave us $10 an hour. So we added it. I added up all the hours so it was supposed to be at least $120. All I get is $90," said Charles Martin.

"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.

Some people weren't satisfied with filling out a claim form for money they felt was still due to them.

"They say that they gonna call you or they going to mail it to you, but I don't know. We'll see what happens," said Antron Grose.

"Talking about they'll mail it to us. I ain't worried about that, man. They're not going to mail nothin'," said Martin.

Those people now realize that Obama could not follow through on his promise to pay a few hundred people for campaigning for him, how is he going to follow through on his other Socialist policies?

Only time will tell what will happen with Obama in the White House, his head full of Socialistic ideas, and being supported by people like Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Dick Durbin. My guess is that the public as well as the media will quickly turn against him as he is either exposed as someone who can not carry through with his promises, or as the public realizes that his plans also take away precious liberties.

Oprah thinks America is now as united as we were on 9/11

This morning Oprah made the comment that with the election of Barack Obama, Americans are now more united, like the times right after 9/11 when Americans banded together. I hate to tell Oprah but she is wrong on this one. Obama may have won but he did not win by that much and we are certainly not a unified nation.

As of 11:02pm on November 5 2008, the votes are as follows:

Barack Obama has 53% of the vote or 63,993,373 votes.

John McCain has 46% of the vote or 56,443,226 votes.

Furthermore, third party candidates received 1,559,570.

Anyone who understands the concept of "half-plus-one" will understand what I mean when I say that is essentially what Obama obe by.

Now many people know I am deeply saddened by this country electing a Socialist, but I blame the GOP for not sticking to the conservative roots, and I blame the Main Stream Media for shamelessly blacking out some candidates while pandering to others. I also blame the fact that many American's do not what Socialism is, have no idea about history, and can not see that Obama's policies are actually harmful to a free nation of people.

However, these results actually give me some hope. A lot of people thought it would be a landslide victory for Barack Obama, but it is far from a landslide. This lets me know that when Obama does become tyrannical and attempts to enact Socialism, I will not be the only Patriot standing against him, hopefully these election results mean that there are 56 million other people who will stand with me (and I know there are some who will).

So no Oprah, the country is not more unified now, or as unified as after 9/11. The country is split almost right down the middle. I can understand why she thinks this is unified, after all she thinks that Socialism is synonymous with Liberty.

So fear not my friends, in 2010 we can put some Liberty minded candidates back in Congress, and in 2012 we will hopefully have brought the Republican Party back to its' true conservative roots and we can take back the country. I just hope we last that long.

Be bitter, cling to your guns and your God, defend your liberty.


This is my country damnit

Last night when it was announced that Obama was the President I was bummed, I still am really. Last night I was called a neo-con when I said I did not like Obama, but let me make something clear, I do not like McCain either. With that being said I would rather have McCain than a Socialist. People tell me that I am over reacting about the Socialist thing, I tell those people they have never read a history book, and indeed if they have read a history book they would know what Obama's policies are all about.

As I let it all sink in and I slept on it I woke up this morning furious as all hell. What is the matter with the people in this country? Do those who voted for Obama not know what the problems with Socialism are? Do they not know the people who have tried to implement Socialism throughout history? The answer is one of two things, they either do not know and will be in for a rude awakening soon, or they know and they would rather be slaves than free people in which case those folks need to be removed from the tree of liberty.

My anger is growing as I watch the news. This is my country damnit! The country of patriots and the Founding Fathers, the country of men who said things such as:

"Before God, I believe the hour has come. My judgement approves this measure, and my whole heart is in it. All that I have, and all that I am, and all that I hope in this life, I am now ready here to stake upon it. And I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the Declaration. It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and Independence for ever!" -John Adams

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our country men." -Samuel Adams

And two of my favorite:
"The said constitution shall never be construed to authorize congress to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." -Samuel Adams

"They that would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

This country was not founded on socialism, or communism. It was founded on liberty, on the fact that our ancestors were hard workers and they worked to make a better life for themselves, and they were willing to help their neighbor, BUT THEY WERE NOT FORCED TO DO SO! This country was founded on the blood of patriots and tyrants, because the Patriots knew that tyranny is never acceptable and were willing to die rather than be a slave.

The writers of the Constitution knew what they were doing, and when it was passed, everyone who was governed by the document knew the document well. Today many people do not know what is written in that important text.

Knowing the legacy of my Founding Fathers I will be damned if I am taken in by the Socialist policies of the President elect. I will not do mandated national service in either the military nor the peace corps. I will not join some Civilian National Security Force. I will put up intellectual fights, based on the Constitution, as to why it is absolutely wrong to redistribute wealth into universal health care and welfare.

I was blessed enough by God to be able to be born as am American Citizen. I cherish that more than most people know. Along with that came the liberties of this free country. I will be damned if some man thinks he can take away my rights Granted by God and Established in the Constitution of these United States of America.

Liberty is non-negotiable,

Obama has been elected the President

At this point we know the election results.

Welcome to the Socialist States of America.

Tomorrow my flag will fly upside down because we are seriously a nation in distress.

Be strong my liberty loving friends. Buy your guns before they are banned, keep your constitution close, and remember that Socialism is not Patriotic.

Sleep well, for we will be fighting for our liberties for the next 4 years.


A vote by any other name

I got to the polling place at 6:45am, here were already a lot of people there, and sadly a large number of them were voting for Obama. It makes me wonder if they will be the ones so quick to join the Civilian National Security Force, so quick to turn in their neighbors, so quick to hand over their rights.

I cast all of my votes knowing that I would be able to sleep at night, that I could certainly not be accused of doing nothing. I cast my vote keeping in mind that I am a Patriot, willing to live, fight, and die for my rights because if Obama is elected we will soon know the true cost of freedom. Obama has made it quite clear that he believes his socialist policies are patriotic, insinuating that anyone standing against him is not a patriot. This language scares me, it is used t divide people, it makes his supporters believe they are the only patriots and thus one must support socialism to be a patriot; these are the same tactics used by dictators throughout history.

We will see what happens as the polls close tonight. I am already suspecting a lot of foul play. There were two machines at my polling place, which is no where near enough for the amount of people who were there already. One of those machines was "broken", although it said that the machine was turned on at 6:56am before the polls opened. The woman in the polling place asked people to vote by paper ballot and then put their ballot in a cardboard box near-by. I decided to wait for the machine, not knowing which was worse, a machine that was probably tampered with, or a cardboard box.

On another vote, I did not see anyone from ACORN driving a bus full of illegal immigrants named John Smith or Mickey Mouse so I suppose that is a good thing.

Go vote people, there is always someone to vote for, thri party or write in is always an option.

Obama's Civilain National Security Force

And now, if there was any ever reason not to vote for this man, this is the it. I am becoming afraid to even make posts like this because if this man becomes President, this blog as well as this blog owner may disappear.

A Civilian National Security force. First off, when you train civilians to be a security force they are technically no longer civilians. And what is the purpose of making civilians into a security force? Throughout history these people have been those who turn in their neighbors for "dissent", they have been the ones who drag their fellow man from their homes and ensure that the Fuhrer President has no opposition. This is what Marx's dream was, and the tactics that Lenin used. These are the thoughts and actions of Hitler.

Now let us not forget that Obama and Biden have already floated the idea of forced volunteerism in either the military or the peace corps, which is also not an idea that goes hand in hand with freedom and liberty. I am certain our favorite communists the People's Republic of China have this same policy in effect, and Hitler had the Nazi Youth.

A Civilian National Security Force will make your family and friends jack booted thugs whose job it will be to ensure a firm boot on your throat. Have no doubt about it folks, Obama will pit you against your neighbor's, your friends and family. Children will be encouraged in their schools to turn in their parents. If you do not know what this plan would look like, venture back into some history, read Orwell's 1984, and better yet read "The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot" by Naomi Wolf.

I am not saying that people will willingly do this. Throughout history they were not always willing, but they do it anyway after some persuasion. Perhaps they remember that their neighbor disappeared one night, or perhaps they are reminded of how quickly their own families could disappear.

If their was ever a time to cling to God and your Guns, now is that time. And while you are at cling to a lot of ammo, non-perishable foods, and water.

The Lesser of Two Evils

Three more days until the good commercials come back on television.

With the political season winding down and the future of our country at stake I feel the need to express just one more time something that many others are feeling.

This blog writer does not endorse any of the current candidates for President. I feel that there was one individual running that was worthy of this office but he is no longer in the race. At this point this is what I am telling people, either vote third party or vote for John McCain.

While neither McCain or Obama are the greatest of candidates it is clear that McCain is by far the lesser of two evils. Actually compared to Obama, McCain is not all that evil at all just slightly delinquent.

We know a few things about Obama:

He is a socialist

He will take your guns away even though he does not have the Constitutional authority to do so. He has already voted to do so many times, including going on record saying that he supports a federal ban on concealed carry laws.

He has already attempted to violate free speech rights of organizations who speak out against him, and there is no reason to believe he will cease that activity if he is elected.

He is on record as saying that he believes the federal government must introduce "price signals" to cause a behavior change in the American public, similar to what was done with Fannie and Freddie to cause banks to give questionable loans to people. The fallout of that is the current financial crisis.

He will socialize medicine and increase the welfare state and the taxpayer is the one who has to foot the bill.

Remember this when stepping into the voting booth in a few days, one person is going to decide how free you are in the next four years and of all the candidates Obama is the one offer the least freedoms.

Cling to your God and you guns,
